A Letter to the Editor of Time Magazine

Recently Time.com published an article entitled, ” Study: Making Pornography More Accessible May Curb Child Abuse.” We responded:

Dear Ms. Park and Time Editors,

The Innocent Justice Foundation exists to educate the public on the true nature and scope of child pornography, and thereby correct misperceptions within the US population that using child pornography is a victimless crime, similar to viewing adult pornography, as might be implied by the article published today on Time.com entitled, “Study: Making Child Pornography More Accessible May Curb Child Abuse.” I would respectfully argue that nothing could be farther than the truth, and that possessors are extremely dangerous to children.

Connecticut Law Enforcement Agencies Get Help

It’s always a great joy to receive private foundation, corporation, and individual donations to support law enforcement in their hunt to take more child sex predators off the streets, and yesterday was a banner day. In this time of slashing of law enforcement budgets, two foundations in Connecticut have generously funded the extreme needs of law enforcement for the basic tools they need to do their jobs. With this new $12,500

Thank you!

I am reminded time and again how little we can achieve on our own, and how reliant we are on people with large hearts to help us in our mission of supporting cops who rescue kids from sexual abuse. Recently we’ve gotten large donations – one from the Fresno Regional Foundation to fund mobile forensic units for Fresno Parole agents who had no other way to check sex offender computers for child sexual abuse images, another from a Foundation in Kansas who was willing to make sure that the Kansas Internet Crimes Against Children task force has the tools it needs to teach small agencies throughout the state how to find and catch child sex predators. We are incredibly grateful to these foundations for their significant investments into keeping their local children safe.

But even small donations which go to help Innocent Justice keep operating mean so much to us and go a long, long way.

Are You Up to the Challenge for Connecticut Kids?

Connecticut’s children are crying out to be rescued from sexual abuse…and people in Connecticut are responding. Local area foundations and organizations are challenging you to help law enforcement get the tools they need to go out and take them out of harm’s way. We have several challenge grants that have gotten us part of the way to three Cellebrite cell phone forensic units in Connecticut. We have been overwhelmed by the immediate and generous responses out of Connecticut for needs throughout the state, but we need you to help take us all the way home.

25% Recidivism Rate – Really?

I admire Diane Sawyer tremendously, and was so gratified to see her achieve such prominence as anchor of ABC’s World New Tonight. That’s why I tuned in so closely to Oprah’s interview of her yesterday. Gravely, when the topic of Chelsea King came up, following all the pain we San Diegans have been bearing the last week, I hoped that she would help educate the public on the true nature of sex offenders.

But I stood aghast as Diane told the American public that only 25% of sex offenders re-offend.

There are many studies of recidivism rates, and they track offenders anywhere from 6 months after release to 25 years or more after release, so recidivism rates can fluctuate wildly based on the time period used.

Parents: Minimizing One-on-One Adult-Child Interactions Good Way to Keep Your Child Safe

Even after working in this field for years, some cases, like the recent one of Delaware accused child rapist and pediatrician Dr. Earl Bradley, still have the power to surprise me with the amount of heartrending horror, shock and disgust they produce. I am continually amazed, too, at parents who would leave their children alone in a doctor’s office, even with a pediatrician.

I am very thankful, though, that many of these heinous and brutal crimes are being discovered thanks to the dimwitted perpetrators’ use

When Sex Offender Treatment Works

625,000 Americans are actively trading in child sexual abuse images. That’s a lot of people, mostly men. Many of them – 59% according to a University of New Hampshire study – are or were married. When these child predators are caught, they often leave a trail of devastated family members, friends and communities behind.
Often good people wonder – can’t we get the sex offender therapy so they can return to their lives? Isn’t there something
